Interactive II : Kamarulzaman & Cheong Su Hui : Fortune Taker

Fortune Taker

In this project, we set up a booth where we invite people to get their fortune read by a virtual fortune teller.

Little did they know that we are out to scare them and capture their reaction.

Conceptually, this project was originally out to capture photographs of people whenever they enter a room, in a form of paparazzi style photographs. This was to question the idea of privacy and we wanted to post those photographs on twitter. Fortune Taker was born after much discussion on how to make the project stronger.
